06/16 – Day 206: The Lucky One

I really love how Nicholas Sparks write love stories.

The Lucky One is a story of a soldier named Logan who found a picture in Iraq that brought luck in his life. When he got back in Colorado, he decided to find the girl in the picture and walked miles and miles to Hampton, there he found the girl who made his heart beat. The story was so detailed as expectedly when you are reading it rather than watching it. I finished my e-book and decided to watch the movie weeks after to compare. I was a bit disappointed though. Victor was not part of the movie. He is Logan’s friend who actually pushed him to find Beth. I also expected that Ben hates well not really hate but just don’t like being with Keith but then in the movie they were actually doing well.
I don’t really expect that it will be the same as the book but there were scenes that were cut which I really want to see in the movie. Anyways, I am glad that I was able to watch and compare it.

04/30 – Day 159: Avengers

Famazing = Famously Amazing.

It is indeed an awesome movie and of course an eye candy. Captain America and Ironman surely made the movie sizzle but of course, The Hulk’s charisma was so incredible.

I am a bit disappointment that I was not able to see my favorite avenger — Spiderman. The movie really knows where to win the heart of the audience. The fight scenes were something that I looked forward for and it did not fail me. Overall, the movie exceeded my expectation. To be honest, I am not a fan of the Marvel comics back when I was a kid but I have been watching the cartoons so somehow I know the characters. There were a lot of avengers missing but I guess this is not the last Avenger movie. I hope that if they are going to make another one, the amazing Spidey should be part of it.

and of course my favorite quotes:

Loki: I won’t be bullied! I am a god!
Bruce Banner/The Hulk: [tosses around] Psch… God.

Tony Stark: Lets do a head count. A couple of master assassins, a demigod, a super soldier… and you’ve managed to piss off every single one of them.
Loki: I have an army.
Tony Stark: We have a Hulk!

and my most favorite:

Captain America: Big man in a suit of armor. Under that what are you?
Tony Stark: Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.

Ironman’s sarcasm makes me love him more. 😉

… looking forward for The Avengers 2!

12/17 – Day 24: One Day

Twenty Years. Two People. One Day.

In our life, we meet different people. Some become our friends, some well, they are just another stranger that comes in and out of our life and there is one that can change the course of our existence and just happened because of fate.

One Day is a movie adaptation from David Nicholls novel of the same name.

Dexter and Em are merely acquaintances. They spend the night together after their college graduation and been in touch with each other whether they are together or not every 15th of July. I don’t want to spoil the movie if you haven’t watched it yet but it is a good love story. It can happen in real life though.

Having a guy friend, a best friend to be exact wherein you can share every ups and downs of your life is one amazing thing that can happen in a girl’s life. I do have guy friends, share some stuffs with them, being cool without any emotional attachment but I can say that as you become closer with each other you cannot help but appreciate the person on a different light. You develop feelings may it be mutual or not. There are times you realized it when it is already too late or rather deny it because you just don’t want to ruin your friendship.

Em and Dexter shared a crazy love story. It is not a typical boy meets girl who had sex and they end up together. As years pass by, their friendship become stronger and deeper. He shares most of his ups moments to her and calls her when his world crash. She has always been the good friend who listens and gives him advices. Eventhough he may not be the best friend in the world, he believes in her dreams of becoming a writer. Dexter became a television presenter who hooks up with several women and drinks and party the night away.

Em made him a better man and in return, he makes her happy. I believed she already fall for him after they spent the night together. Dex on the other hand appreciated Em more when she’s already dating someone. Both were secretly longing and inlove with each other.

Overall, the movie is good. I can’t say it is great but it made me cry and believed that great relationships starts with friendship. 🙂
